This seems like the ticket -- HOWEVER -- does not support Mac! If you use Boot Camp or Fusion or Parallels, you should be in luck... I believe that it is free, which you thought would be "even better".

There is also a lot of Mac DVD-CONVERSION software (not free) at

http://www.aimersoft.com/product-mac.html

The whole suite is pricey at $79 but seems to cover the whole gamut,... I think though you'd want the one "DVD Creator for Mac" which I am downloading now to try out...

Hope this helps. Let me know your results or if you found even better solutions... this interests me too. Thanks.

You can also use MPEG Streamclip (www.squared5.com), available for Mac OS X, to convert the video files to DV files and then import those into iMovie or even iDVD.

Or you can try Burn.

Or you can use MRoogle, as this is one of those questions that gets asked a lot, not as often as when the new iPadBook Pro is due though.

What I do is open a new project in iDVD and let iDVD encode and burn my DVD. I think you should ensure that the mp4 file you want to convert to DVD is playable by Quicktime, as that is what iDVD uses. It's not fast, in fact, it's darn slow, even on the latest generation MacPro notebook. A 90 minute movie takes a couple hours to encode and burn, but other than that, thats what works for me and it's already there on my Mac. Nothing extra needed.
